Twitter Establishes R&D Center in India

Twitter Establishes R&D Center in India

Twitter, the San Francisco-based social network company, plans to set up a research and design center in Bangalore, its first such facility outside the U.S. Financial Times reports that this decision was taken to enable Twitter to accelerate its growth in emerging markets, and to tailor its service for countries such as India and Indonesia, two of its fastest-growing user markets this year, according to research group eMarketer. Twitter plans to use their recently acquired Bangalore-based ZipDial’s team as the basis for its new R&D facility.

Rishi Jaitly, Twitter’s head of India said, “It does constitute a big vote of confidence from Twitter at the global level in India. It is a big investment in India and emerging markets, and an engineering center is a big outcome [of the deal between Twitter and ZipDial].”

Valerie Wagoner, founder of ZipDial, who joined Twitter following the company’s acquisition, said, “Twitter wants engineering teams based in emerging markets because we have empathy for users in these markets. This isn’t a case of ideas from San Francisco, being built here; we are going to have full control over products.”
